Powers: Ganju uses a variety of earth magic that differs from the standard kidou spells. He commonly uses his magic to turn solid earth into sand to trap or throw his opponents off balance.
Due to his family expertise, Ganju often employs fireworks to disorient and attack his opponents.
Bio: For a long time, Kuukaku and Ganju only knew that Kaien was slain by a shinigami, Rukia Kuchiki. This led to a lot of ill will between the Shiba family and the shinigami. It was not until after Rukia was rescued that they learned the entire truth of Kaien's death.
